it should not be a problem and probably will help you
most programs have some pgy2 positions exactl for the applicant
who has done a prelim or transitional year. the only thing is you should somehow get in 4 months of neurology during that first year because a lot of programs don't really have a way for you to do those 4 months if you're starting as pgy2
you need those 4 months for board certificaton in psych
Thanks for your reply. I'm in a "strait" medicine program so 4 months of neuro is impossible - but from some research it seems you just end up doing it in your 4th year if not along the way. Are there any good sites out there for psychiatry residents etc. Thanks.
